"If You Haven't Been There, You Don't Know What It's Like": Doing Day Care.
Wolf, Jean M.; Walsh, Daniel J.
Early Education and Development, v9 n1 p29-47 Jan 1998
Examines Sarason's (1995) political principle, "if you are going to be affected, directly or indirectly, by a policy, you should stand in some relationship to the decision-making process." Uses ethnographic research to explore face-to-face interactions of day care workers within the larger highly asymmetric and regulated relational day care system. Concludes that caregivers have little say in decisions. (EV)
